Niger's President Wins African Leadership Award

Mahamadou Issoufou is 6th recipient of Ibrahim Prize, which is awarded on criteria of good governance, democratic election.

Niger's President Mahamadou Issoufou on Monday won the 2020 Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership.
Issoufou is the sixth recipient of the Ibrahim Prize, which is awarded on criteria of good governance, democratic election and respect of terms limits.
"In the face of the most severe political and economic issues, including violent extremism and increasing desertification, President Mahamadou Issoufou has led his people on a path of progress," said Festus Mogae, the head of the Prize Committee and former president of Botswana.
"The number of Nigeriens living below the poverty line has fallen to 40%, from 48% a decade ago. While challenges remain, Issoufou has kept his promises to the Nigerien people and paved the way for a better future. After careful consideration, the Committee finds President Issoufou a worthy winner of the Ibrahim Prize," he added.
He is the Niger's outgoing president after serving two terms as required by the country's constitution.
Issoufou was the prime minister of Niger from 1993 to 1994 and president of the National Assembly from 1995 to 1996.
Niger, a landlocked country in West Africa named after the Niger River, has been rocked by terror attacks for the past years. -
